Here at Right-click, we fully prepare our candidates so that they know what to say, and not to say at their interview although that doesn’t always mean that there isn’t the odd slip up every now and then. We did have one candidate that took their Grandma along for moral support and another one who gave the two interviewers hugs when she left, leaving them feeling a little uncomfortable! And regardless of our extensive interview prep, one candidate gave a slightly worrying answer to the question – “what would your previous manager say about you?” Their answer was “Suspicious”! CareerBuilder surveyed 2,595 hiring and HR professionals to find out what the oddest job interview mistakes that candidates have made were and the results were slightly more extreme. They ranged from recruiters having their palms read by a self-professed psychic to a candidate who stole a photo from the interviewer’s desk. So based on the survey results, here are the top 10 interview faux pas: A candidate took a family photo off of the interviewer's desk and put it into her purse. A candidate started screaming that the interview was taking too long. A candidate said her main job was being a psychic and tried to read the interviewer's palm, despite the interviewer attempting to decline the offer. When asked what his or her ideal job was, the candidate replied that he or she wanted to become a "painter of birdhouses." The company was hiring for a data entry clerk. A candidate sang her responses to questions. A candidate put lotion on his/her feet during the interview. When asked why he wanted the position, candidate replied, "My wife wants me to get a job." A candidate started feeling interviewer's chest to find a heartbeat so they could "connect heart to heart." A candidate came to the job interview, having a pet bird in his or her shirt. A candidate conducted a phone interview in the bathroom – and flushed. Our clients are lucky that we fully screen all our candidates before we send them for interview so there is little chance of anyone singing their way through the meeting, unless the client is looking for the next big  thing in music…
Thoroughly preparing for a call centre interview is critical. It will not only show the employer that you are genuinely interested in the role, organised and enthusiastic but it will also put you at ease, safe in the knowledge that you have put yourself in the best position to get the job. And it’s not just about researching and practicing your interview technique, simple things like planning what you are going to wear and how to get there is just as important. If you feel confident and are clear on where you are going for the interview this will stand you in good stead for the actual meeting. If you have spoken to one of the Call Centre Jobs in Manchester team, then you will have had a really good briefing about do’s and don’t and some great advice on what to do to prepare for your interview. But if you need to recap on this or you looking for some general advice, here is a quick checklist of things that you need to consider: Double check the time and date of interview (people have turned up on the wrong day before!) Make sure you know who you are meeting and the format of the interview Leave plenty of time to get to the interview, and if necessary do a trial run – there is nothing more stressful than running late and not knowing where you are going Plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early – its better to have extra time to gather your thoughts than dashing in at the last minute Plan your outfit the night before – make sure you ‘dress to impress’ – first impressions always count Spend time researching the company – most websites are a really good source of information and often have careers pages that will give you an insight into their values and culture Read through your CV again to refresh you memory of the key points If you have been given a job description, read it thoroughly and apply your skills and experience to what they are looking for Think through your answers to potential interview questions Go to the interview with a positive and professional attitude
Get a good nights sleep before your interview – have a relaxing bath and get tucked up nice and early. Avoid alcohol – that can be saved for when you are celebrating your new job! Get up nice and early and have an energising breakfast – according to an article in The Guardian “porridge is a great choice as oats are a natural tonic for nerves and help relieve anxiety and stress. Add a chopped banana and some sunflower seeds for a mood boosting dose of serotonin”. Arrive to your interview with plenty of time to spare, and if for whatever reason you are dashing in at the last minute, pop to the bathroom, freshen up and take a deep breath. Remember to smile – it’s a simple tip but this has a two fold effect – it shows that you are happy and confident but it also tells your body to release hormones that make you feel positive and relaxed. According to Target Jobs, one way to manage your nerves is to put your interview in perspective. “They wouldn’t be interviewing you if they thought you lacked potential for the position”. Replace negative thoughts with positive ones and look at the interview as a meeting – a two way process that allows you to decide whether the company is right for you. The Undercover Recruiter suggests that it is good to be open about your nerves. “If you start feeling nervous during the interview, remember that it’s ok to admit it. It’s ok to say something like ‘I apologise, I’m extremely nervous. This is my first interview’. This will only make you appear more human and the interviewer may just be able to relate to you more.”
